Cecil's is always a great place for lunch. The brisket is the best I have had. The free ice cream at the end is icing on the take. The pork and chicken are awesome, but first timers please try the brisket!

Don't be fooled some of the "fancy BBQ" spots around town. This is how real BBQ should be. Very welcoming, friendly atmosphere. The food is consistently excellent after years of going. Free ice cream for dessert as well!

This is the place for Texas Style BBQ. Far better than all the "Chain" BBQ places (Dickey's, 3 Rivers, etc). You can order a one, two, or three meat plate (all freshly sliced and weighed in front of you), then go thru a cafeteria style...More

I smoke all kinds of meats at home all of the time. Cecil's ribs are as good as restaurant ribs get. They also have lots of delicious sides. Their jalapeno mashed potatoes are great, they do a good fired okra and their beans and collards...More
